Artist Membership

melinda wang 12

Artists Equity was founded in March 1947 by more than 160 leading American artists, including Will Barnet, Thomas Hart Benton, George Biddle, Paul Cadmus, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Edward Hopper, Jacob Lawrence, Louise Nevelson and the first President Yasuo Kuniyoshi.  These diverse artists were all clear on one point -- they had to band together to help one another
We invite you to become a part of this legacy, join an impressive roster of artist members and – most importantly – connect with other artists.  Membership dues go directly toward programming to benefit artists and curators and to fund critically-engaged exhibitions.

In addition, all members enjoy the following benefits:


Regular membership: $60/year  ||  Student membership: $30/year

Checks can be sent to:

Membership dues are tax-deductible and directly support Artists Equity's programming and resources for artists.  Student membership is available for full-time students only; must provide proof of status.
